6:00am
businesses, defended people -- >> sean: apologizing for success. >> bold, take no nonsense, pull no punches. that's what i want. >> sean: good to see you guys. hour goes by too fast. we need another hour. thanks for being with good morning, it's saturday, september 29th. i'm alisyn camerota. the obama administration withheld crucial information about the u.s. consulate attack on purpose. one government agency is taking responsibility is this just the white house trying to cover up the coverup. >> for get state and federal taxes. if the united nations gets its way the united states tax me g.e.d.en could go global.
6:01am
>> just how friendly are our skies? "fox & friends" begins right now. snet ♪ >> good saturday morning, everyone. welcome in to "fox & friends" on this early fall morning. coming up in just about a half an hour we are going to talk about whether or not spanking should be considered a form of child abuse. one state is actually moving, perhaps, to make it that way. you could be locked up as a result of it. >> looking forward to that debate. we will answer that question. which one of us three is the funniest reporter in new york? we'll not give you any clues. >> no clues. >> i said no -- >> more on that later on in the program. >> meanwhile the top story, the news that has consumed us for the better part of two weeks now. that is what happened in benghazi?
6:02am
why was the message coming out of the administration so muddled at best and misleading at worse? when did they know that it was a terrorist attack? why won't the president actually use the term terrorist attack? well, yesterday there was a major break through and one agency came out and took responsibility. >> in fact, it was james clapper's office, the director of national intelligent basically trying to take the onus off the white house by saying hey it was the intelligence community's fault and said, this quote: in the immediate aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to the executive branch officials and members of congress who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they became available. through the our investigation we continued to emphasize that our information was preliminary and evolving. >> we were waiting for someone
6:03am
like james clapper or tom donilin to weigh in on this. as you pars those words i'm not sure it gets susan rice off the hook. peter king is calling for her to resign. does that get her off the hook for coming out five days after this happened on five different sunday shows and saying this was spontaneous protest related to this film. i don't think so. we all know what james clapper's office said. we know that they have been evolving on this. but it took five days. >> not only that what she said was unequivocal. why not just say the safest thing that all administration say when they don't want to release information which is the investigation is continuing. we don't have all the information. >> why jump to the conclusion that this is about a film and each at the president's u.n. speech this week he highlighted this film through
6:04am
throughout this u.n. speech leading many to believe that the main issue is this youtube clip that seems relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of siblings charles krauthammer also had a similar take on this and he responded to that james clapper statement last night. take a listen. >> well, you read the dni -- dnr statement it's a cover your rump statement for the people they political end of this. you read this nonsense that the dni put out and you say is this what we're spending 50, $60 billion a year on to get intelligence? >> so, it's a slam on the intelligence community in that statement there. also, in the front page of the "new york times" this morning not exactly a right leaning newspaper saying shifting reports on libya may cost president obama. and politically looking at this sort of locked up place for him in a foreign policy debate. ben stein coming out yesterday saying he thinks this whole scandal could be worse than
6:05am
watergate because at the end of it people died. take a listen. >> they had warning after warning. yesterday's "wall street journal" makes it extremely clear how much warning they had. various assassination attempts. destruction of property attempts reports from various intelligence sources. they did nothing to protect the ambassador whatsoever. that's one. plus, there was the coverup afterwards. how much worse than the watergate coverup? that's a joke. >> that echoed comments made by governor huckabee. he said essentially the same thing that this does resemble the coverup at watergate in this case someone died. >> governor huckabee is going to be on with us so we can talk about that have you seen enough of all of this in the media? in fact if you have been watching fox news we have been talking about it every single day. if you happened to watch "the today show" this past week or good morning america this past week. they have not been dealing with it in fact, i believe the
6:06am
media research center who studies all of these things looked at every day of good morning america and said they have not touched it at all. >> too much pop news to report. >> too much tom cruise information to do. >> than talk about world affairs. >> that's their angle they are not talking about what is -- what has left four americans dead and could be an act of war. so jonah goldberg talks about what is going on with the media here. >> the mainstream media, and i used to be a professional media critic has gotten just about as corrupt in the aggregate. there are specific individuals i think are responsible people. the way that they have covered the -- ever since the conventions where basically anything inconvenient to the obama campaign was cast as racist. there seems to be this mad rush to just simply declare romney dead and move on. >> on the counter side of that, again, i hold up the
6:07am
front page of the "new york times" this morning with the story. >> taking a step to say it may cost obama. >> i hope this becomes an issue in the debate. i know it's not structured at all foreclosure policy related. i hope they at lease get a question in. >> all right. let's move on to your head lions and tell you what else is happening at this hour. president obama made a phone call to prime minister benjamin netanyahu widespread criticism of failing to meet with him in person this week. the white house says they discussed a range of security issues and agreed they must prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. mitt romney also speaking with netanyahu about the country that he calls the world's greatest national security threat. >> we have very much have the same interest to make sure that iran does not develop nuclear capability which would threaten the existence of israel. threaten devastation potentially in other nations of the world. and we must make every effort to prevent them from developing that nuclear
6:08am
capability. >> romney also said he believes there is a way to stop iran without military action. we have new details this morning about that work place shooting at a sign company in minneapolis. the death toll rising as a fifth person dies from their wounds. police say the gunman is this person, 36-year-old andrew, he went on the rampage just hours after being fired. hand picking reportedly his targets. >> it's clear that he did walk by some people, very clear. so, especially when the officer area that he went. he did walk people to get to certain other members of the business. >> touring a such of his home they found 10,000 pounds of ammunition. >> boy movie massacre gunman
6:09am
james holmes was banned from colorado university campus. those papers revealed he threatened one of his professors. the d.a. says this is the reason why he was banned and not because he had dropped out. >> the defense argued the prosecution lied when she said james holmes was banned from the campus. the judge said well maybe it was an exaggeration but it's no big deal. >> the university is denying this was the reason. a man was hiking with friends when he fell more than 20 feet landing on rocks. ' get him out of the ravine. he had several broken bones but is he expected to be okay those are your headlines. >> we have been talking about tax megeddon at the end of the year when the tax cuts are set
6:10am
to expire and every american would feel it in some form or fashion. now, forget the american tax megeddon, it looks like a global tax megeddon if the united nations gets its way. >> this was discussed at the u.n. general assembly. probably not likely to be instituted or supported by the united states who is already the biggest contribute ter to the u.n. over 20% of the u.n. budget. here is what has been proposed. a 1% tax on billion nargs around the world. a tax on all currency trading in the u.s. a tiny tax on all financial transactions. >> how tiny? >> not sure. >> new taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets. this has for the past year these ideas have been bandied about and the overall overarching goal would be to help transfer money from richations like the united states to poor developing countries. now, what's interesting is that this would be entered into the actual record of what was discussed discussed it at t.
6:11am
when foxnews.com reported on this. they were suddenly sent an unsolicited statement from the u.s. mission to the u.n. the united states opposes taxes. any source of revenue should remain under the control of national authorities. this is an idea that has been kicked around for years. fortunately it hasn't gone anywhere nor will it. >> in other words, we didn't think the media would get ahold of this. >> right. it wouldn't be reported. [ laughter ] >> certainly it was. and august of this money. so keeping the money behind national borders instead of funneling it to the united nations which, again, we are the largest. >> right. as if redistribution isn't already happening by us providing billions of dollars a year to the u.n. right? >> yes, correct, dave, thank you. [ laughter ] coming up, here is an issue we hope you will will find us on twitter and weigh in. is spanking your child, is it child abuse? one state says it could be.
6:12am
they are trying to ban any physical pain from children. it could include parents spanking their children. should that be up to the parents to decide. >> recent polls show president obama pulling ahead of mitt romney in ohio. do the numbers match up with what the buckeye state is seeing? we'll explore after this. [ owner ] i need to expand to meet the needs of my growing business. but how am i going to fund it? and i have to find a way to manage my cash flow better. [ female announcer ] our wells fargo bankers are here to listen, offer guidance and provide you with options tailored to your business. we've loaned more money to small businesses than any other bank for ten years running. so come talk to us to see how we can help.

6:14am
6:15am
>> the late sexual offense fox news poll among likely voters taken in ohio shows president obama has a 7 point lead but the mainstream media is reporting the president has a double digit lead. >> our next guest says that neither of those matter and they don't reflect what's
6:16am
really going on in the buckeye state. dr. mark smith is the president of ohio christian university and vice chairman of the ohio chapter of the safe and freedom coalition. good morning, dr. smith. >> good morning, ali, how are you this morning. >> i'm doing well. it's not just the fox news poll that shows president obama is leading in the all important state of ohio. there is also a quinnipiac, "new york times" poll that gives him a 10-point lead. what makes you think these polls are wrong? >> well, first of all, i'm on the ground here. and there is absolutely no way in ohio that this is a 10 point race right now. and what these polls are not picking up is the voter intensity among the faith-based community in particular. i work with the catholics for ohio. i last night spoke at the african-american -- with the african-american community. i work with the faith and freedom coalition and the intensity among the churches, among the catholics, among the african-american community, this time is not on the side of president obama.
6:17am
we are seeing major efforts done by these groups and those groups are all working to turn out the vote. give you an example. 1.5 million voters have been contacted by faith and freedom. 1.2 million mail orders are being sent out. 475,000 catholics who didn't vote last time are being contacted. there is a faith-based effort that is going on that is larger than anything i have ever seen before in my history and double what it was in the 2008 race. that report on intensity is voters is great. >> report on friday suggests that the absentee ballots show that enthusiasm that you are talking about. coming in far in favor of republicans up to this point with some other counties not reporting. but the real clear politics average i think the best barometer of polls shows romney back about 5 points in ohio. what has inspired that base that you are talking about to get so excited?
6:18am
>> well, in 2008, we came off of 8 years of george bush and the faith based community has embraced george bush and had someone been disappointed with some the effects of that. then we had john mccain who really never came out and endorsed the faith community at all. and then we had a president elected and all of us were excited. i was excited with the hope and change message. hoping some good things happen. i vote for democrats. i vote for republicans. i was excited about that. after four years, looking at issues like same sex marriage, all of the life issues which the president does not stand for, and you see religious liberty being attacked as never before in this country. the faith-based community now understands what the alternative is is. and we understand that mitt romney, while some have said well, he is a mormon he is not an evangelical may not be the candidate of our religious choice, i can say with a
6:19am
surety that he aligns with family values, with the same sex marriage values, with the life values much more with the evangelical community than this president does. >> dr. mark smith, you are the president of ohio christian university. thanks so much for coming in and giving us your perspective. >> fantastic. thank you for having me today. >> all right. coming up, reports tell us the white house knew within 24 hours of the libya attack that it could have been an act of terror. why didn't they just say so and what does this say about the administration's political ambition? >> then talking about a super tax to help its budget woes. wait until you hear what france want to tax its richest citizens. ♪

6:24am
this morning. several days after the attack on the u.s. consulate. this is the story that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president.
6:25am
>> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came out to the rose garden and told americans these were acts of terror and punished to punish the perpetrators and i have no doubt we will. it does take time to put all of this together. we now know or appear to believe militia known an sar sharia hijacked the ongoing upon stainous protest it took seven hours after the he a prost tnd at attacks it to go home and get mortars and go home and fire the consulate. what intelligence analysts believe now they cased the joint. it was a preplanned attack but maybe the day wasn't preplanned. so it did begin as spontaneous protest. then they came, in hijacked it and killed american heros. >> does that wash? >> the administration was lock in step with their statement. you had hillary clinton that came out. you had our u.n. ambassador that came out. you had jay carney, the white house press secretary saying in essence that this attack was spontaneous.
6:26am
it was because of an anti-muslim video. now we know to the contrary i'm so dlidded that john kerry even is he working with barack obama on the debates is going to lead an investigation to actually see what happened. we need to know what the house knew and why we did not beef up security at our embassies. the fact that this anti-muslim film came out in january we used that to blame the attacks in benghazi? >> marc, why the detect though fox news reporting 24 hours afterwards and our sources confirming that and in my mind i'm looking at the calendar september 11th. five days later have you secretary rice up on the sunday talk shows on five different shows vociferously defending, this mark? >> again, the president of the united states within 24 hours called this an act of terror. we knew this was a terrorist attack. we didn't know who did it and whether it was planned. it turns out that, again, the
6:27am
terrorists saw this it spontaneous protest against the video, the despicable video. they ran home and got their march -- mortars. only seven hours that they used those mortars. >> up in the debates? >> i believe this is going to be a problem. as ben stein said and others. this could be worse than watergate for the obama administration. the problem is will the mainstream media actually report it. people need to tune in to the debates. mitt romney needs to hold barack obama's feet to the fire. >> will it be a problem for the president. >> i think america wants for all the facts before he accuses people. came out on september 11th and broke embargo on politicking claimed it it to sympathized football. >> this president waited. is he right to wait until he had all the facts. >> wait until we see debates come up. thanks for coming in.
6:28am
>> thank you, clayton. >> this debate coming up, is spanking child abuse? one state saying yes, it is and trying to ban parents from spanking their children. should it be up to parents to decide? and arnold schwarzenegger for the first time opening up about his affair. >> i think it was the stupidest thing i have done in the whole relationship. it was terrible. >> what else the former governor has to say about it next. ♪ leaving my homeland ♪ pling a lone hand ♪ my life begins today ♪ ♪ fly by night away from here ♪ ♪ change my life again ♪ ♪ fly by night, goodbye my dear ♪ ♪ my ship isn't coming ♪ and i just can't pretend oww!

[ laughter ] >> or as honey boo boo calls that, breakfast. >> it's go go juice. here is your go go juice. >> go go juice is mountain dew and red bull combined which to some would be child abuse. >> not for honey boo boo. >> the reason we are talking about in this morning spanking. long been a debate years ago it might have been commonplace. maybe our parents were routinely spanked. my dad talked about going to
6:33am
school getting his hands smacked by the teachers. now we have learned quite a bit about what spanking does to children. right now in delaware the governor had passed just a few weeks ago a bill which would actually outlaw spanking and making it child abuse. >> he proposed the bill. it's obviously very controversial. this is governor jack markel from delaware. basically what it says. excerpts of it, a person is guilty of child abuse in the third degree when the person recklessly here is the controversial part or intentionally causes physical injury to a child through an act of neglect abuse or neglect of a child. this is ambiguous language that could include spanking. >> spanking ban in delaware. billing supporter of this by the way is attorney general bo biden. of course the son of the vice president you can see a gray area in which you get in trouble. spanking should a parent be allowed to spank their child?
6:34am
yes. you do want want some protection for that child if some parents takes things just too far. do you need some protection within the law but, big gray area. >> that's the argument. >> general's child abuse. the fact this is so ambiguous. bo biden's office could not say definitively that no parent would be prosecuted. >> no one can definitively say where the line is drawn. yes. >> that the thing. so there is some protection for a parent to say well, i was spanking them and it got too far and the child ended up dying which has happened and happened a lot, actually. then the parent has some protection there because it's considered inned a vert tent or discipline and tended up happening. the research is in. something i would never do in my house or ever touch my child in that way because the american academy of pediatrics and reserve shows how detective tri mention this is to a child later in life.
6:35am
it may not show up for a few years but the way in which that child, i don't know, holds it inside of heir body and it comes out in other ways later in their life. like it's a bad thing. >> you i bet you are going to hear comments on twitter because i already am. >> if it's okay to hit a child, email me. >> spank a child. >> plenty of parents have spanked a child. >> i'm sure the research shows that it's wrong. >> weigh in at ff weekend. >> don't pay attention to the research. ignore it. >> friends at foxnews.com. >> obama administration plan to spend $450 million in egypt. but a republic congressman is saying not so fast. peter doocy life in washington, d.c. with more. we won't ask if he was spanked as a child. too close to home. peter with you, sir. >> we can stick to $450 million in cash that the obama administration says they want to transfer to egypt. it's part of $1 billion that's
6:36am
already been appropriated. but that billion dollars was set aside before the violent protests outside the american embassy in cairo earlier this month. now republic congresswoman kay granger is saying that she isn't just going to fork over $450 million to the new government in egypt which is run by the brotherhood. this proposal comes to congress at a point when the u.s.-egypt rip has never been under more scrutiny and rightly so. i am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and i cannot support it at this time as chair of the subcommittee i have placed a hold on these funds. earlier in the week, in new york. secretary of state hillary clinton mentioned this month want riots in egypt and context of the ongoing arab spring. she made clear in a state department's estimation right now. the way to calm down these protesters is to secure the country, in part, with money.
6:37am
the recent riots and protests throughout the region have brought the challenge of transition into sharp relief. extremists are clearly determined to hijack these reforms and revolutions to it further their ageneral does and ideology so our partnership must empower those that would see their nations emerge as true democracy. >> back in september all the foreign aid conference shed said they would send to egypt was contingent on supporting a democratic government and that government holding open elections and supporting the rights of their citizens. but right now $450 million of that money is on hold back to you in new york. get to your headlines and tell you what is happening because an amber alert has been issued in nashville for two children missing for nearly a week now after their house burned down.

6:39am
>> i think it was the stupidest thing i have done in the whole relationship. it was terrible. i inflicted tremendous pain on marie and ounbelievable pain on the kids. >> the stupidest thing he has done in the whole relationship. [ laughter ] >> you think? >> there is a revelation. >> the full interview airs tomorrow. his memoir "total recall" goes on sale monday. good title. tuesday he will be here to talk about the new book. >> one of the revelations in the book is maria shriver didn't want him to run as governor of california until she spoke to eunice, you know in the kennedy family we support our men when they want to do these things. she had a reversal. >> carl rove is also subject of that book. >> you are right. >> discuss on tuesday. first we talk a little sports now. the cincinnati reds ran away with their division this season as we approach the

intelligence is weighing in. is he giving cover to susan rice for the administration's wobbling evolution on the truth? >> we may see how this argument is now about to play out. right? we had a debate on the show a little while ago. fascinating because i was hearing from mark lavine, radio talk show host. argument from the left that this intelligence may have been muddled from the beginning and they were making their way to uncover it this is what the director of national intelligence is now saying it was on us, basically, not the white house. read. this in the intermeet adaftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began response stainously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that assessment to the white house and men's of congress who used that information to discuss that attack publicly and provide updates as they became available. through the our investigation we continued to emphasize that information gathered was preliminary and evolving. the white house came out, the president, within 24 hours or
7:03am
so said it was a terrorist attack. susan rice coming out five days later even on the sunday talk show saying it was spontaneous. >> related to this anti-prophet mohammed film. >> i don't know what's worse. whether the administration intentionally mislead the public as the critics charge for political reasons or whether this was a massive intelligence failure that our intelligence officers either cannot get access to benghazi or don't have the tools or resources to find out what was really happening on the ground because by the way witnesses said it right away. the witnesses said it people there knew it this was a terrorist attack. >> confirmed within 24 hours it was being labeled that. even being labeled something that related to an off chute of al qaeda. i agree with you. i don't care this covers susan rice or the administration at all. we already knew they evolved. the question is why.

attack. she is booked on knive news shows and uses exact terminology. not spontaneous. premeditated planned at all. told to go out there by people must have known the intelligence and therefore using these people, these administration people to deceive and to mislead unless they were utterly stupid about what happened. that we ought to find out who told ms. rice to go out and say that. who told carney to go out and say that. because we now know it was utterly false. >> does she get off the hook as a result of that. congressman peter king doesn't think so. her name has been floated obviously as iraq says sore hillary clinton for secretary of state. could that throw a wrench into that process. >> john kerry hopes so. >> has the media been covering this adequately. >> let me say this, if this were george w. bush and this happened on his watch, how would the media have covered it. >> they would be calling for not just an investigation but far greater than that. >> would it have been covered
7:06am
far monday than it was. >> i don't know. these hypotheticals are hard toe. no that's certainly what critics say because it's the obama administration and so many members of the mainstream media are liberal. it's not getting the national and international attention it needs. have you been pointing out a lot of coverage in print media and a lot of coverage to the evening news. morning news where the majority of americans who still watch television get their news, it's the morning news shows that media research center shows that good morning america and "the today show" have been woefulfully inadequate in their coverage of this. >> here is the general media coverage on everything. take a look at this hole poll out from news organizations spending more time defending president obama. 47% in this poll to 16% for defend will romney they say or 21% both. and this poll taken the week of september 24th through the 26th after the unfolding of all of this. >> here we are with under 40 days to go, will foreign policy become a greater issue

amount of coverage that republics were given over the abortion language, look the way the media have covered the bump in the road comment which romney had made would have been a story for a week verses how they covered the romney statement when the cairo embassy issued this statement about free speech and then the video the coverage he got on his gaffe was minimal. it was almost ignored. the romney story lasted for three days at a time when u.s. policy in the region was in collapse. which is almost entirely ignored. i think but we saw in the poll how people conceive this is exactly right. they watch and see and quite obvious which way the bias is going. >> we would like to know your thoughts on how the media has

equity at this line of credit impacted? it's not a second mortgage in a foreclosure. >> helock are generally secured but it's revolving line of credit. it changes. as long as there is security interest against the mortgage. also going to be involved short sale if they have to deal with them or otherwise. heloc are tricky. home modifications tricky. they are considered a debt against the house. you are going to have to like anything else whether do you a short sale, if there is a foreclosure, then the first takes the house back, you could still be responsible for the heloc. same like the second mortgage resolving all the time. the amount of the debt changes but the impact does not change. >> use bankruptcy can get rid of it. >> if you qualify for bankruptcy, yes. let's take another question. yes, ma'am. >> what your name? >> an i. >> what's angie. >> my question is what is going to happen if they don't
7:25am
extend the mortgage relief act after january 1st and the homeowners don't have enough time to short sale the properties? >> one of the things we talked about was the mortgage relief act passed in 2007. that basically said if your primary residence and foreclosed on and deficiency and forgiven don't have to pay a tax on it that expires this year. now, the finance committee a few weeks ago bipartisan ruled or passed to extend it congress has not ruled on it yet and voted on it. i'm assuming that's going to happen particularly because of the election year. probably be extended at least one year. if that happens, it's great for america. if it doesn't happen. that could be devastating. bankruptcy also go through the roof. i believe because the commerce finance committee did it. we're probably going to get it done probably next 30, 60 days before election day it will happen. thank you. please, what your name? >> barbara. >> okay, barbara, how can i help you? >> if you have an investment property, and you are going to
7:26am
have to go bankrupt because of the investment property, but you have your kids' college money sitting in the bank, is the college money protected? >> well, you know, that's interesting. because that's more of an asset protection type of issue but essentially what she is saying is i think it's going to depend on how the money is set up. for example, if you have it set up in certain kind of funds and protection which is one of the things we talked about is asset protection. tax lawyers and people do asset protection can have the funds set up in i think that could be exempt where they can't go after it because essentially it's money put away but it can be protected in certain fashion. if the money is just sitting there in a bank account, a savings account, a money market. a cd. that's unprotected asset. if there is a judgment, even though your intent is to have it for to pay for college funds, if it's not done in the right way, getting professional, legal advice from a tax attorney as a protection expert then it could be vulnerable. always we covered this in our
7:27am
seminar today. always make sure you get advice on asset protection. what we learned really is that the question that the audience asked today is questions that we hear all the time there is a sense of frustration. there is a sense that nobody is listening to them and they need to get some direction and somebody to listen to their problems and try to help solve their problems. that's what we try to do today to educate and answer some questions and, again, it's something that needs to be done even more so. and i'm glad we had the opportunity down here at treasure island to take care of this and answer questions as best as we could. back to you. >> all right. thanks so much, bob. great tips. a new threat on the war on terror. tastes using twitter to further their causes. what measures are being taken by the fbi to stop this? as of now, none. >> and new york city mayor michael bloomberg taking his food fight to the federal level. the mayor's obesity concerns clashing with the national push for free school breakfasts. we'll tell you about that next.

for your jaw to drop, listen to the punishment if you are caught with drugs. even selling drugs in the classroom. first offense a written reprimand and mandatory counseling. are you kidding me? second offense three day suspension without pay. third offense for drugs around your children is termination. what's interesting is it is pretty much zero tolerance when it comes to the students in that classroom. middle school and high school students found under the influence of drugs or alcohol five day suspension. minimum or a three day suspension with counseling on the first offense. >> what sort of a precedent does that set for the kids? that's the part that stuck out for me the most how hypothetical this would be. you had these teachers who are drunk in the classroom teaching our children and then you say to the kids, look, we have a different set of rules for you. you can't -- you only get three days or three strikes and you are out of the school or expelled. >> by the way, we should mention one more time that
7:35am
this is no longer in effect. it expired june 30th. it was in effect since something like 1997. but it expired june 30th. however, they are renegotiating their contract and they were not willing to say if they would continue to have this language in the new contract or if it would be expunged. >> stossel, this goes to show you how difficult it is to fire a teacher with some of these union regulations and these rules that they come up with and sign off on. >> this is why some democrats even like rahm immanuel are beginning to push back against teacher unions. >> we saw concessions from andrew cuomo as well. let us know what you think about it ff weekend on twitter. zero tolerance policy for kids but not so much for the teachers. >> let's get to your headlines right now and tell you what else is happening. the check is not in the mail to egypt. the head of the house subcommittee on foreign operations halting the obama administration's plans to send
7:36am
$450 million in aid. congresswoman kay granger saying ill am not convinced of the urgent need for assistance. i cannot support it at this time. i have placed a held on these funds. numerous lawmakers have called for congress to cut off aid to egypt after those anti-american protests stormed our embassy in cairo. the u.s. gives egypt more than $1.5 billion a year in aid. >> a fight over school breakfast gains the attention the ashy duncan. michael bloomberg is fighting the program free morning meals saying this will make kids gain weight. arne duncan disagrees. he has written a letter encouraging them to take part and offering programs that would let kids have food in class so that they aren't singled out by going to school early for free meals. >> texas teenager hero saved his friends from a burning suv. esteban was riding with five friends when the suv went off
7:37am
the road and flipped several times. two students were thrown from the vehicle. another climbed out the window. he was not hurt and he helped pull another friend out of the car. then he realized someone else was still trapped inside. >> so, i had went down unbuckled him and pulled him out. tossed him over my shoulder and moved him back a good 50 yards with everybody else. and when i put him down, i turned around and the car was on fire. >> he is a good friend. all the teens are expected to be okay. esteban does not consider himself a hero. he was just doing what his friends would have done for him. those are your headlines. >> would you do that for me, dave? >> if you guys were in a burning car i will miss you. because of i can to the throw one of you over my shoulder. >> i don't know if the adrenaline would kick in for alli to be able to pick the car up like super woman. >> adrenaline, a lot on the

[ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix.
7:43am
if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. it helps to have people around you... they say, you're much bigger than this. and you are.

7:44am
so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. >> welcome back. social media outlets have become popular way for people to stay in touch with friends and family. next guest says that terrorist groups are using the form of networking as a way to further their causes. now he and fellow congressman say it's time for the fbi to take action and ensure web sites like twitter don't
7:45am
become another tool for the terrorists. joining us is texas congressman ted poe leading the charge on this. nice to he so you this, no. >> good morning, clayton. >> educate our audience this is all new to me as well. these different terrorist organizations who have a lot of twitter followers. we will put this up on our screen. that hezbollah has 27,300 twitter followers. hamas 17,000 twitter followers. al shabaab 16,000 twitter followers. to happen? >> it happens because they use twitter and twitter allows that to occur. in all fairness to twitter no one has asked them to take down these sites that these terrorist organizations use. that's the purpose of the letter asking the fbi to request a twitter that we not allow these terrorist organizations that preach not just hate but immediate violence against americans and others throughout the world take down these sites because that's how they communicate with other criminals in their
7:46am
organization constitutionally they are not allowed to do that we just want these sites taken down. >> do you believe the fbi is not doing anything on this? is this the rub from congress that the fbi is not looking at these twitter accounts and monitoring it? is that the answer you want from the fbi? >> well, i'm not sure what the fbi is doing. i suspect they probably are monitoring the accounts. i would suspect they are doing that but, we want the accounts to be taken down because they communicate with other terrorists and promote immediate violence against americans and other people throughout the world so, they don't have the -- these groups don't have the right to use an american company to promote terrorism throughout the world and that's why we have requested that they not be allowed to use these twitter accounts. >> right. we have reached out to -- fox news has reached out of to the fbi for a statement. we have not heard back yet from the fbi on that let me
7:47am
play devil's advocate here wouldn't it be more beneficial to have these twitter accounts out there because we could monitor them? we could see who is following the account of hamas trace it back. find the linkages that way. is this not another opportunity for us to maybe educate ourselves about maybe homegrown terrorists, terrorist cells living within the united states and other places? >> sure, that is a way to following what they are doing. reach a point still keep up with these organizations which i think we have the intelligence capability to do so, or to allow them to continue to recruit other members, recruit violence throughout the world so it's a tradeoff. you have to make up your mind whether or not you want the information or you want really not to allow them to promote terrorism throughout the united states? i think we can keep up with these groups. we are capable of doing that we have great intelligence services. but they shouldn't be allowed to recruit on the internet to
7:48am
commit murder against the united states, americans, or violence. >> and you have actually met with twitter. you met with the folks from twitter and what did they tell you? they would probably if they were requested by the fbi to take down the accounts, they will probably do so like youtube and facebook has done in the past. so they are really waiting for a request from the fbi. several of us have written director muler a letter asking him to take down these accounts or at least explain why they have not requested. so we have asked the fbi to weigh in on this. so that we can get some response. and figure out what the best way to handle this advertising of terrorism. >> yeah it is bizarre to me to think about the types of things that people tweet like i'm having a sandwich for lunch and think that hamas has a twitter account with 140 characterization to tell us what they are doing.
7:49am
unbelievable to me. thanks for joining us on "fox & friends." we appreciate it. >> thank you, clayton. >> coming up on the show. in just a few days president obama and mitt romney will go head to head in their first debate. what advice does governor huckabee have for mitt romney and perhaps president obama? we'll ask him at the top of the hour. then, need an extra boost before heading to the gym? i'm going to show you some foods that can helpful your workout. but you never thought trying some of these like pickles, pickle juice yeah, i'm looking to save, but i'm not sure which policy is right for me. you should try our coverage checker. it helps you see if you have too much coverage or not enough, making it easier to get what you need.

7:55am
helps your body retain hydration. magnesium helps your muscles avoid cramping. you get both those benefits from the pick tell juice. >> next, chocolate milk. why not regular milk? >> it has a lot sugar which is great after the workout because your muscles are depleted of sugar were that is what you use to work up the sweat. you replace the sugars immediately after. it is a good thing to have. a protein, again, you get more dairy protein. >> which is good for fighting inflammation? >> when you see red, purple or bright blues it is an antioxidant which target muscle inflaming so you are not so sure after the work out for the marathon. >> you can eat cherries or blueberries or others. >>guest: or grapes, any those

8:01am
should romney use some humor. >>governor>>governor huckabee: , boy. >>dave: he told you, he would be back. >> it was the stupidest thing i have done in the relationship. it was terrible. >>clayton: that is terrible, arnold. >>dave: arnold coming clean since the affirm with a new book, and doing a book tour. "fox & friends" organization hour three starts right now. >> work on it, work on it. >>dave: he is funny. we the ask governor huckabee
8:02am
will romney try to be funny? >>alisyn: clay done was one of the funniest in new york. we will talk about that soon. there were phone calls between binyamin netanyahu, president obama calling netanyahu a mid-criticism for not meeting with him in person this week. the white house says they agreed that both countries must stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. mitt romney speaking with netanyahu about the country's greatest national security threat. >> we have very much the same interests to make sure iran does not develop nuclear capability which would threaten the existence of israel. the threat, devastation, potentially of israel and other nations of the world. we must make every effort to prevent that from developing that nuclear capability. >> he has called for crippling sanctions to be put in place.
8:03am
>> the u.s. admitting they lost track of some of syria's chemical weapons and cannot rule out their ran or syrian rebels have them. >> there has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. where, exactly, that has taken place be we don't know. >>alisyn: he adds it appears the moves were to protect the weapons and the main sites are secure, after rebels took control of a military base with chemical weapons. sear has vowed to use chemical weapons if the country is attacked. >> brand new documents detailing why accused movie massacre gunman james holmes was banned from the university of colorado campus after threatening a professor. the d.n.a. says this is the reason he was banned, not because he dropped out. >> the prosecutor lied when she said he was banned from the
8:04am
entry to the campus. the judge said, well, maybe it was an exaggeration but it is no big deal. >>alisyn: the university denies this is the reason. >> ahead of the release of his "tell all" arnold schwarzenegger is opening up to "60 minutes" about his affair with the family housekeeper which resulted in a love child and ended his marriage. >> i think it was the stupidest thing i've done in the whole relationship. it was terrible. i inflicted tremendous pain on maria and unbelievable pain on the kids. >>alisyn: the full interview airs tomorrow. arnold schwarzenegger's memoir goes on sale on monday. be sure to watch "fox & friends" on tuesday because arnold schwarzenegger will be here to talk about his new book. i can't wait to hear the questions. >>dave: they have a back-and-forth dialogue.
8:05am
governor huckabee, welcome. >>governor huckabee: thank you. >>clayton: the main story, the top story in a lot of the newspapers, the alleged coverup or the question of an alleged coverup from the white house on benghazi-gate. when did the white house know it was a terrorist attack? why did they wait so long to report that as the case? now we have this commentary coming out from the director of national intelligence blaming them rather than the white house. hung how they are taking the fall. that is what happens in a political environment. the fact is, it is indisputable this was clear evidence, long before susan rice was on the talk shows and before jake carney denied this was terrorism and said this was about the film. there are a lot of questions that must be answered. americans ought to demand we know why didn't you tell us the
8:06am
truth? i have been pretty blunt about this from day one. our government lied to us. i don't know who is responsible. i do know we have been lied to. there has been a coverup. that is unquestionable at this stage. >>dave: you compared it to watergate saying it was, perhaps, worse. this statement from the director of national intelligence. in the immediate aftermath there was information that led to us assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of congress who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they become available. through our investigation we emphasized that information gathered was preliminary and evolving." governor, it seemed they jumped to an immediate conclusion that rather than saying we are very cautious while gaining the information, it had to do with be youtube
8:07am
clip, antiprophet mohammed clip. why might they have misled the american people if, in fact, they had this information? >>governor huckabee: the only credible reason they would do this is because part of what they want to achieve is the war on terrorism is over. bin laden is dead. we are out of iraq. we are getting out of afghanistan. this is winding down. >>clayton: is it possible, though, we had early debate, and a liberal talk show host said there was a my libya that co-opted all the violence unfolding as a result of the movie so the intelligence was muddled and that is why the obama administration put this out? >>governor huckabee: that doesn't work. if that were the case the proper response from jake canne, from susan rice and the president himself and those talking on talking point pages because the words are identical. those are not spontaneous words
8:08am
but identical phrases and words. everyone has been given a script and they read it. that is how it works. the fact is, if that was the case, what they would have said and the prudent thing to say is we don't know we are investigating that is not what they did. they were explicit. they absolutely declared this was a spontaneous mob reaction to a film. with the libyan president saying no, it wasn't the film, or the jerusalem post, posted a september 4 letter on september 11, before the attack, saying there was going to be an uprising in egypt, two difficulties before the attack, the second in command in libya warned the state department officials that there was chatter, there was something going to happen. i'm sorry, it doesn't work. >>alisyn: governor, the first debate coming up this week, will the moderator go off the land and talk about some of this stuff? it is supposed to be domestic issues. this is what is in the news.
8:09am
will they talk to the candidates about this? >>governor huckabee: absolutely. it is the 800-pound elephant in the room. i think it will look silly for them to say, no, we can't talk about the single most important issue that could determine the outcome of this election. that would be ridiculous to ignore. >>dave: there are different things that the governor can do at this point, one is introducing humor as you have in the past. another is maybe show some emotion as the governor do in a for rum you had this year. let's show this moment from your debate a couple of years ago and see if romney can do something similar. watch. >>guest: instead, what we have done is what senator john mccain has suggested. we had a congress that spent money like john edwards at a beauty shop. it is high time we have a different kind of tax structure. a fair tax would get us there. >> will mitt romney employ humor? or is that a mistake? >>governor huckabee: if it
8:10am
is natural, yes, any forced humor comes across as phony and ridiculous. >>alisyn: hold on. the zingers get attention. should the zingers be inserted. >>governor huckabee: only if he can carry it off. there is nothing worse than a forced zinger when it looks like i have been planning this all day long and now it doesn't really fit but here goes. it needs to be spontaneous. that is when humor works when people are not expecting it. >>dave: what about emotion? he showed it to you in the forum a couple of months ago. will that work? is that something he should tackle? >>governor huckabee: it was a natural moment, a powerful moment. he needs to go into it. here is my advise to mitt romney, not that he asked for it, but here it is, don't go overprepared that is the mistake people make. they are too prepared. they are so filled with information they forget passion and emotion.
8:11am
spend the day before the debate forgetting this stuff the go out, read a good book, it is by the lake, do something that takes your mind away from it but fill your heart and your expert with emotion. when you walk into the debate you know the "stuff," don't worry about the stuff. look at the other person, the moderator. go for the heart and soul. >> we will have you stick around, does he need to go on the attack as he does with newt gingrich if he destroyed him in that debate. >>governor huckabee: he needs to be bold and assertive. he has to be careful, however, he wants to be respectful of the office of the president. he must do that. but he cannot act as if he is not worthy of standing on the stage. he has to go after the position and policies of president without going after the office of the president. that is the key thing. >>alisyn: stick around. there was a warning for america
8:12am
recorded more than 40 years ago. listen. >> nations at war with themselves. >>alisyn: i hope the audio is better when we play it again. that is paul harvey. we know you have methods about this and whether our culture has become as corrupt as he warned. f [ whistle blowing ] where do you hear that beat? campbell's healthy request soup lets you hear it... in your heart.

harvey had a theory. listen. (inaudible). >> if i were the devil i would encourage schools to refine young intellects. >> so, was harvey warning the world of the future all those years ago? we continue our discussion with governor huckabee who probably has some thoughts on that. >>governor huckabee: there will never be another paul harvey. he was a true american legend. he said as if he were a prophet not just a broadcaster. if you look at the full text of what he said, it was so very insightful as to when you numb the minds, the hearts, the spirits and the souls, you can control them in ways otherwise you couldn't. look what has happened as this country has moved away from the sense of self-sufficiency, self
8:17am
respect, independence, and going more and more to dependence on medication, and ways to escape our pain, ways to make sure we never feel anything that is hurtful. we changed our character and who we are. >>dave: is this happening in the home or is this happening at the government level? >>governor huckabee: this isn't the government's fault. we can claim a lost stuff on the government. not this. this is about americans wanting to have it as easy as possible. the greatest generation, the generation before mine, i'm a baby boomer, that generation before mine made great sacrifices because they want toddle separate their kids to avoid the depression and avoid a world war. they were so usful in sacrificing themselves for us. sadly, baby boomers, my generation, have sacrificed our children and grandchild so we would not have to feel the pain. we have spent money we didn't have, we borrowed money we could not afford to pay back at a personal level and a government level. now, look what is happening to the generals coming after this,
8:18am
generation x. they inherit not a better world. they are inherit a good awful mess because of self-centered diswe have created to make it all about us. >>alisyn: but paul harvey broadcast this in 1965. 50 years ago, really. is there a part of it where we always have the same struggles? >>governor huckabee: he predicted what was happening. that is when the beginning started. you think about the 60's where that period was lsd was introduced, the pill came into vogue, no fault divorce, we took god and prayer out of schools and the public square, we begame a self-centered society starting in the 60's. we are now reaching the full results of the seeds sown in the 1960's. it is nut pretty. >>dave: what is the benefit of reverse? all the people dependent on the
8:19am
medications, get rid of them. what is the reverse of this? >>governor huckabee: i'm not saying that. there are people that need medication because they are ill. you do not want people uninhibited on the streets but sometimes we reach for a medication and what we really ought to be reaching for is maybe an activity that pours us into our minds, into our families. the greatest healer for a lot of people's pain would be to take their mind off themselves and put it on the needs of others. if you go to a place, i remember going to rwanda, being in egypt, being in india, places such as that, and you look at poverty, and you say i don't have a problem. i have complained about my electricity bill. these people will never have electricity in their lives. >>dave: don't miss the show tonight at 8:00 eastern, and hopefully the romney camp is watching and will have great advice for the wednesday debate in denver. what the government ought to do. >>alisyn: thank you.

8:25am
tests,hen they actually are rolled out commercially, what they will be able to do is identify children that are likely to develop autism at a up younger able. now it is common to wait years for the diagnosis which delays treatment and delays help for the children for a long-term. what this test is likely to do is allow us to provide treatment to get to the kids well before the age of one. >>alisyn: thank you, doctor. there is a blood different that can help parents realize their children have autism before they see the warning signs? >>guest: we are talking about gene mutations. it has been identified that perhaps 20 percent to 30 percent of autism spectrum behavior could be linked to a gene alteration. we all have gene files that can affect the development of our behavior so this is looking for the alterations. it is similar, for instance, for folks with breast cancer to have a family gene. we can test the family and

child how do you greet this news in how would this change your life? >>guest: i think it is important to realize this is not available yet. this is coming very soon. it still has to be organized. again, we are looking know specific gene mutations. here they do about 30 mutations at mount sinai and looking at whether or not we have to look at autism from a metabolic problem. are there medications you can introduce early on that could change the pathways of the neurons so when the child is in therapy they have a better understanding. it is a combination of many things. again, it is a part of the puzzle. the puzzle is still not complete. >>alisyn: any breakthrough is welcome. thank you both, doctors, for coming in and talking about this. >> parents, fearing their kid might town out like this.

8:33am
not going to be in the mail any time soon. >>alisyn: peter has why, from washington, dc. >>peter: when president morrissey from the muslim brotherhood in egypt took over, the state department set aside $1.5 billion for him and the new government which was drawn from a bunch of accounts that had a little extra money left from the last few years. when the fund was set up, the state department said if they were going to use that money they would give congress a heads-up. yesterday they told congress they were going to send $450 million to egypt to help the new government, the top republican on the appropriations committee subcommittee on foreign affairs committee said, not so fast. the quote "this proposal comes to congress at a point when the u.s. and egypt relationship has never been under more scrutiny and rightly so. i'm not convinced of the urgent need for the assistance and i cannot support it at this time. as chair of the subcommittee i place a hold on the funds."
8:34am
this money was obviously set aside before this month's violent protests outside the american embassy in cairo. the congresswoman wants things to cool down before sending egypt a big chunk of change. if she wants to keep the money in the states she had to write a bill she cannot just hold it indefinitely. a senior state department official says the united states remains committed to a democratic transition in egypt. earlier this week in new york we got a sense why that is from secretary of state, hillary clinton. >> the recent riots and protests throughout the region have brought the challenge of transition into sharp relief. extremists are clearly determined to hijack the reforms and revolutions to further their agendas and ideology. our partnership must empower those who would see their nations empty merge as true democracy. >> a few months ago another

republican congresswoman did not want the state department to send any money to the palestinian authority. she raised a similar objection. they went ahead and sent the money anyway so we don't know at this point if the state department will treat this objection to the egyptian money any differently. back to new york. >>alisyn: and now to the headlines, we start with a fox news alert right now. we are learning that yesterday morning, prison break in saddam hussein's hometown was "an inside job." iraqi leaders say a few guards helped inmates, many of them al qaeda members, escape by leaving cell doors unlocked. they smuggled weapons inside during family visits. more than 100 got out after an hour's long gun battle. so far, only 23 inmates have been captured. 20 people were killed during the prison break. >> another day, another blunder for the t.s.a., a day after the t.s.a. in orlando missed a loaded gun in a woman's bag, the

>> we are outside with you. bacon. bacon lovers pay attention, you may have heard reports this week there will be an unavoidable shortage next year of bacon because of drought conditions. we have good news. this is greatly exaggerated story. >>dave: the director of corporate communication at smithfield, the largest pork country, say there is no need to panic. i did panic a bit. i am a bacon lover. first off, there is a bit of a shortage. it was an over reaction in the media but there is a shortage and the prices will go up. >>guest: you have three things, the world-decide consumption of pork is increasing. the other thing is, the drought we had in the midwest. of course, the third thing is the fact of the ethanol taking corn out of the market so a lost faxers are cutting back on their herds. >>clayton: the feed they would get, and there was a press release, stating a world-wide
8:40am
shortage of pork and bacon is unavoidable. you disagree with that? >>guest: on a world-wide basis this will be lets -- less pork. but well have enough, smithfield and our family of companies with farmland, we cover the whole country coast to coast. we will have plenty of bacon for everyone in the united states this year. >>dave: we brought enough for the viewers. too bad more did not come out this morning we are serving free breakfast. you acknowledge the price of bacon will go up. how were are we talking about for folks going to the grocery store? >>guest: you are looking at $4 a pound average. you could get another 50 cents, maybe $1 a pound. when you buy meat candy the price is not a big deal. meat candy. bacon is meat candy. >>clayton: smithfield handing out the bacon sandwiches. there is debate in the house, how to best prepare the bacon the my wife likes to broil it in
8:41am
a pan in the oven. sometimes in a pinch my family in the past has thrown it in the microwave. it is good that way. is there a best way to prepare bacon? >>guest: as long as you have bacon, you have done it right. personally i like the old cast iron frying pan. you have that flavor there. the nice thing, it is so convenient, you can put it in the microwave, a minute a slice and you have a great breakfast start. >> can you come back every weekend? >>guest: love to. when we can come on "fox & friends" we are happy to do so. >>clayton: we could have the greatest job in the country. >>dave: i like mine with maple syrup. >>guest: we have that, and brown sugar bacon, we will give you bacon any way you want it when you come to smithfield. >>alisyn: i would like you guys do bring mit to me in the

studio. i know they will claim there wasn't enough bacon do bring it to me. let's see what happens. >> president obama promised to turn the country around in four years. four years later we still have high unemployment and a growing deficit. should we be in a better place in we will debate that. many students are going through the school day hungry, they say, because of new federal guidelines. the government solution, does it go far enough? [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior,
8:43am
thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. it helps to have people around you... they say, you're much bigger than this. and you are.

8:45am
>>clayton: welcome back. before and after being elected in 2008, the administration seemed certain he could turn the economy around in four years.
8:46am
>> if i don't have this done in three years this is a one-term proposition. i will be held accountable. i pledge to cut deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office. >> we estimate we can cut the average family's premium by about $2,500 per year. >> the fact is, the recovery act is working. >> how confident are you if we sat down here a year from today, you can say our policies is worked? >> incredibly confident. >> four years later the country is facing high unemployment, a shrinking g.d.p. and a growing deficit but the president says it is understandable given the mess he inherited. is it understandable or should we be in a better place at this point? let's ask our guest. should we be in a better place than we currently are? was bill clinton right during the democratic national convention when he said no one, no president, could have had this type of recovery and dealt with it, republican or democrat.
8:47am
>>guest: the problem with that line that this is the best we can do, always played the clips, that was president obama, and vice president biden and so many of the economists who told us four years ago we are going to get out of this mess and we will have a very robust recovery. i just shows the clip and president obama said he would be a one-termer if things are not turned around. have we turned things around? it is dicey. if you look at what happened this week with the g.d.p. numbers that came out, very weak, 1.3 percent growth. that is a third of where we should be. we have $5 trillion in debt. the deficit has not been cut in half. instead, it has actually doubled. when president came in it was $500 billion and now it is $1 trillion. the theme of the re-election campaign could be promises made, promises broken. >> the argument is this recession is different than any we have seen before. in context, we will put up
8:48am
growth in the first 12 quarters after world war ii, talking about the reagan recovery in the mid-80's at 18.5 percent and obama's recovery is 6.7 percent. what do you make of the president's argument this recession is unlike anything we have seen before? ing it is a hard argument when you look at what happened in 1981 and 1982 when president reagan was elected. he inherit add great economic crisis. i graduated from college at that time with a college degree. you could barely get a job as a bugger flipper. you remember we had 14 percent inflation and 20 percent mortgage interest rates of the my point is the economy was a wreck then. but in three years ronald reagan had turned around the economy. we had 5 percent, 6 percent, 7 percent rate of economic growth and a month where we created a million jobs in one month. the economy did much better under the reagan program, which is cutting taxes, deregulating
8:49am
the economy, slamming the brakes on the money supply. that would make the case that president obama has done the opposite. he has increased the spending. there is a threat of a huge tax increase next year. if you talk to business men and women as i do all the time, they say this regulatory onslaught is smothering. >>clayton: another argument is what would have resolved the recovery faster if you allowed us to pass a greater stimulus, more government spending would have accelerated our rate of recovery. do you buy that? >>guest: i don't think very many americans boy that. we have had $5 trillion of debt in four years. that is more debt than the united states took on from 1776 through the year 2000. in other words, in four years we have borrowed more money than it took to finance the revolutionary war, the civil war, world war i and world war ii and the great depression. i don't buy that. the idea that somehow if we had borrowed more pun we would be on
8:50am
a faster rate of growth, that is like saying if we had unrun up our credit card more and had more of the subprime loans we would be in better shape. i don't find any logic to that. i think most americans think what we have to do now is stop the spending, stop the debt, if we are going to turn the economy around. >>clayton: and do not forget the spanish-american war. >>guest: i left that one out. and the cold war, of course. look, i do think we could see a recovery and that is why this debate next week is going to be so critical. both will talk about very different economic ideas on how to turn things around. >>clayton: thank you, we appreciate you joining us this morning and your analysis. >>guest: i am hungry after all the talk about bacon. >>clayton: well save some bacon. >> students rebelling against the new federally mandated healthy lunches. they state meals are not filling them up and the government is stepping in saying, just have a snack.
8:51am
is that enough for your day? forget state and federal taxes if the united nations gets its way tax-geddon could go global. that ahead. at shell, we believe the world needs a broader mix of energies. that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our partner in brazil, shell is producing ethanol - a biofuel made from renewable sugarcane. >>a minute, mom! let's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. so let's talk about coverage. based on this chart, who would you choose ? wow. you guys take a minute. zon, hands down. i'm going to show you guys another chart. pretty obvious. i don't think color matters. pretty obvious. what'sretty obvious about it ? that verizon has the coverage.

>>dave: the obama administration is working to quiet the backlash by adding a snack program to lunches. is that enough? joining us is the founder of regular folks united, and a concerned parent. good morning, to you.
8:55am
>>guest: good morning. >>dave: mom used to know best. how are the new guidelines going over? >>guest: you are right. mother knows best. that has been replaced with federal government knows best. moms across the country are noticing thanks to the kids and doing videos and complaining about lunches this is wrong on so many levels it is hard to get started listing them. the local control and the parental control is taken away to a one size fits all diet for every kid in every public school in america. that doesn't even make sense. who is the genius that thought you could get them to eat more vegetables while you take away salt and butter? what bureaucrat thought of that? they must not be a parent. moms are noticing. some moms can pack lunches or pack snacks. it is ironic the very lunch program that was supposed to get rid hunger, is now making them
8:56am
hungry and now the kid whose may need it most may not get another meal all day long. that is who we have to worry about. >>alisyn: a confusing thing about the government program they is restricted the calories but now the kids are saying they are hungry but the suggestion is, well, snack more. snacking is part of the problem, is it not, with obesity? that message seems a little mixed. >>guest: well, this is typical for the federal government. we will brick it. you fix it. there will be less food at a higher price at a worse quality. when you complaint we will make a completely nonsensical argument that now you need to pack a slam. this is the problem when the federal government gets involved at this local level. this is why you see moms and dads pushing back. what is a mom and dad supposed to do when the federal government does this. they cannot go to the school
8:57am
board and complaint or the lunch room and complaint. they have to go do michelle obama? >>dave: thank you very much. two republican congressman trying to repeal the standards. >>alisyn: more "fox & friends" in a minute. uncer ] the rhythm of life.

"fox & friends" hour four starts now. ♪ >> welcome into fox and friends. some of you concerned about our health. we started the day off with donuts and coffee and factored in bacon egg and cheese sandwiches and we're okay thus far. >> pickle juice earlier on the show. and today is national coffee day, thanks to dunkin' donuts for the coffee. >> dave: tomorrow is national ekg day. >> alisyn: you can get a pound for 5.99. >> clayton: this is the story everyone is talking about, and and when did the administration call a cover up? can we do better than label it as a gate. can the media do better. >> alisyn: it lessens it. four americans are dead.
9:02am
i don't think you should have a cute nickname. >> clayton: and you remember watergate, and mike huckabee and others say it's worse than watergate because people did die. >> dave: the administration trying to cover its tracks and trying to explain its evolution or some say plat out lies. on friday, releasing the statement regarding the handling of the benghazi situation, quote, in the aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneous following the protests in cairo, we provided that initial assessment to executive branch, officials, members of congress who used that information to discuss the attack publicly. and provide updates as they became available. throughout our investigation, we continued to emphasis the information gathered was preliminary and evolving. yes, but does that get sues sap rice, the ambassador to the u.n., off the hook five days after the incident went
9:03am
on the sunday shows and told you, the american public, that this was the latest, spa spontaneous film, youtube clip about the prophet muhammad? they have to have more intelligence than that. >> alisyn: it doesn't answer a lot of questions, and why if the information was preliminary and evolving they didn't say that when they went on the morning shows, we don't have all the information yet, the investigation is ongoing. charles krauthammer has a theory why james clapper's office released the statement. >> it's clearly a cover your rump statement for the people at the political end of this. the other point is you read this nonsense that the dni put out and said is this what we're spending 50, 60 billion dollars a year to get intelligence. >> clayton: it wasn't a coverup or was it failed
9:04am
intelligence? charles' point if that's the intelligence that we're getting, we have bigger fish to fry and ben stein, labeling and watergate. he has his own take. >> warning after warning, yesterday's walt journal makes it extremely clear how much warning they had, various assassination attempts, destruction of property attempts, reports from various intelligence sources, they did nothing to protect the ambassador whatsoever and plus, a coverup. how much worse than the watergate coverup is a joke. >> alisyn: because people are dead and americans were killed. so-- and besides what went wrong with the message. what now? what should people do now? and in terms of the media coverage, there's criticism, whether or not it's getting the coverage that it deserves. and goldberg says that he believes it's part of a bigger media strategy how the mainstream media--
9:05am
>> the mainstream media, i used to be a previously critics, has just got about as corrupt and certain individuals are responsible people. but the way that they have covered, particularly since the conventions, where basically anything inconvenient to the obama campaign was cast as racist. there seems to be this mad rush to just simply declear romney dead and move on. >> clayton: criticism was leveled at the morning shows, good morning america and others who did little or no coverage of it. >> dave: we should point out the senate foreign relations committee did send a letter to the administration demanding answers. but if your i think we've pleaded this morning for it to be brought up and discussed at the top of this debate on wednesday. >> clayton: we hope. if it doesn't, they have their agenda, it's set they know the questions they're getting and getting into that might be odd, as government huckabee said, it might be the elephant
9:06am
in the room. >> alisyn: may take a detour from that plan. we want the headlines, we have a fox news alert for you, because the iraqi leaders are calling yesterday's deadly prison break in hussein's town, inside job. many of them al-qaeda members escaped by leaving cell doors unlocked and inmates smuggled weapons inside apparently during family visits more than a hundred inmates got out after an hours long gun battle. 23 were captured and 20 people were killed during the break. the death toll is rising in the horrible shooting massacre at the minneapolis sign company. a fifth person dying from their wounds and we're learning more details up in-- and the man who went on the rampage, 36-year-old andrew engu engulfener, hours after he was fired and clearly picked out his target. and especially when he went in
9:07am
the office area, that he, he did walk by people to get to certain other members of the business. >> clayton:. >> alisyn: police found packaging for 10,000 rounds of ammunition during a search of his home. well, take a look at this dramatic mountain rescue in atlanta, georgia, a man was heeking he fell 20 feet landing on rocks and he was eventually airlifted out, broken bones, but is expected to be okay. and then, this photo posted online caused a major controversy and a wonderful debate in our 6:00 hour, if you missed it, it shows a baby doing a keg stand at an arizona state university football game. the child's family says it was staged and the baby never drank any beer. some ka you will it child abuse and others argue, he was
9:08am
never in danger. >> clayton: over a lit cigar, or smoke in their face and inhaling it, i'll give you a point over a big hunk of metal with liquid inside of it. >> alisyn: he went on from there. the arizona university state police says they're investigating this incident. >> dave: some say it rises to the level of child abuse. >> alisyn: when you caught miles in a compromising photograph? >> come on don't give dave an idea. >> dave: there are a few incriminating photos that will never see the light of day, that's exactly right. >> meanwhile, if you haven't heard tax-mageddon could be on the wayment could amount to an increase in taxes here domestically. if the united nations has any stay in it, it may be far, it
9:09am
could expand around the globe. >> clayton: the united nations has an idea how they want to raise taxes around the world and all the countries to contribute and they want a 1% tax on billionaires around the world. if you're a billionaire, you're around the world, you're taxed. currency in the united states and tiny tax as they say it on all financial transactions. >> alisyn: and a new taxes, and carbon emissions and this is a controversial proposal and taxing with a global. and foxnews.com picked up the story not just at the past u.n. assembly meeting, but for the past year it's been proposed and spoken of. so, foxnews.com spoke on it and interesting, received an unsolicited statement from the u.s. mission to the u.n. after i guess they read it on the website. here is that statement. the united states opposes global taxes because we believe that any source of revenue should remain under

>> welcome back. as we've been reporting the office of national intelligence led by this man, james clapper, claims they are to blame for the attack on the consulate in libya, calling it spontaneous. and the assistant to george w. bush, good to see you, brad. >> good to see you. >> dave: james clapper was the voice obviously he was waiting to hear weighing in on this whole mess and he basically gives some cover for susan
9:15am
rice coming out on the sunday shows five days after the attack. what do you make of the statement from his office and what should people know about james clapper himself? >> well, james clapper is appointed by president obama to be head of domestic national intelligence. he's obviously falling on the sword of the president because it doesn't fit the president's political narrative 40-less days to a national election. look, the people know what we saw. we're smart. we know fact from fiction, and the fact of the matter is, people don't bring rpg's to a protest. there was no protest, as catherine herridge uncovered, with a fox news network. she says, and through her sources, that there were no protests prior to the attack. the president didn't want a terrorist attack on his watch. so what does he do? he lies about it. and others like ambassador rice, or ambassador to the u.n., lies to the american people about it until the lies could not be sustained by the facts and we now know that not
9:16am
only the-- will the president not admit it, but now those who work under him, subordinates admit the fact that this was a terrorist attack on our ambassador to our ambassador and to three other americans who were killed. >> dave: even trying to give the administration the benefit of the doubt. all right, if you didn't have your ducks in a row why not come out and say this investigation is still ongoing. it is still evolving we don't yet know, enstead of going out and putting the blame on this protest and related this youtube clip. it seems definitive. pull back the curtain for us. it has to go out way to the top, does it to send someone like susan rice, who could be our next secretary of state out to the sunday host with this mission, and where does the message come from? >> it comes from the white house. the white house directs the subordinates when to go on the air and what to say. the president has superior knowledge to his subordinates, i want to know what the
9:17am
president knew and when he knew it and i was a member of the president's senior staff, george w. bush was briefed every morning at 7:00 not only by the cia, but also the fbi, did the president have a personal briefing. we know he did not have a personal briefing after the attack on september 12th. now, was he briefed on paper? what did the president did do? we know the president allows subordinates to go out and say this was not a terrorist attack. in fact the president gave the fodder to our enemies by saying that the youtube video was the cause, when he knows it was not. so the president was complicit in the escalation of violence we've seen throughout the world and the political put -- president put his political state above ours. >> dave: and we always like to ask the question, what if president bush would have done this? what do you think the uproar would have been like? >> they would have been talking impeachment. the president, was derelict in
9:18am
his duties and let the american people down and worse than that he lied about it. i was there on 9/11, i saw a president health bent on bringing the people to justice, he wasn't making excuses, he was being square with the american people and acted exactly as a president does, against those who seek to do us harm and not against the people of america. he put, again, he put his political fortunes above ours and that's totally unacceptable. >> dave: former deputy assistants to george w. bush. thanks for being with us, sir. >> thank you. >> dave: folks weigh in on twitter, find us at ff weekend. a shocking study on who will really bear the burden of obama care, a tax said to be covered by insurers will now be passed on to small businesses and their employees. and then, she's a hollywood rags to riches story. alana stewart dishing on everything, including his famous ex's, george hamilton

make a 5.6 billion dollar payment tomorrow, but it won't affect daily service, guys? >> well, there's a stung new study on obama care, a tax for insurers could be passed on to small businesses and their employees. the so-called hit tax will raise the cost of employer sponsored health insurance and could eliminate 249,000 jobs. >> clayton: joining us to weigh in on that is small business owner, david mccar thur. nice to see you this morning. tell us how this would affect you as a small business owner? >> well, it's just another additional increase on top of the increases that we've been dealing with over the last, you know, year or two years, three years, i mean, the health insurance has been going crazy for, you know, the last 15 years, but since the obama care stuff has taken off in here, it's gone at an
9:24am
unprecedented rate. both to us and the cost to the end users, so, with all of these unfunded mandates that are involved in this, we don't have a clue what our rate is going to go up this year. last year, it was almost 20%, but our employees, the policy that we could buy them is almost unusable for them because the deductables are so high. it's not only the poor business owner, but able to provide for our employees is unusable. it's a nail in the coffin. and i don't know how else to say it. >> alisyn: in fairness, when you're talking about the vast increases you've seen over the past three years, that was obviously before obama care kicked in, and that was exactly what president obama had used to justify passing obama care when he said there are the spiraling health care costs so your costs were rising even without obama care, but. >> no doubt about it. >> alisyn: now, it sounds like, according again to the
9:25am
national federation for independent business research foundation, that's a mouthful, your taxes could go up by 3%. what does it mean for your future and your employees? >> what it means is, if we see another year or two what we've seen in the past two years, we will, we will no longer be providing health care for our 58-- you know, we've got 52 full-time employees that we pay 100% on their health care and that will go away. as simple as that. we cannot absorb the cost any longer for the way the stuff is going up. >> clayton: what about laying people off? we've heard from individuals and spoken to small business owners who are saying they have to go through seminars to try to figure out how obama care will impact their small business and whether or not they can hire individuals or have to lay folks off. what is your experience in all of this? >> well, you know, for us, i can't lay people off because i've got to have x amount of team to do the labor hours needed to stay open. what i have to do is look at ways of reducing my costs of those individuals to the business. and so, it comes to a point
9:26am
where you have to make a simple decision, health care, close the doors. health care, close the doors. there's nothing in between. there's no magic pool of cash left any longer that you can go to to pull this money out. you can't pass the cost on to the consumers. every time you raise the price in a business like ours, you price yourself beyond a certain portion of your customer and you reduce your sales. and it's-- as i say, it's a nail in the coffin. for my own personal belief what this administration wants, forcing small business to go to a national health care system because we're not going to be able to afford it and it's going to be a lot cheaper for us to pay the penalty, not only cheaper, the only way we can survive. we're not going to be able to absorb the cost and we're going to have no choice, but to tell all of your employees, we can't do this anymore now they've got to find their own and in my own personal opinion, this is what our liberal mindset wants is

neglect of such child. well, the democratic governor signed this into law and it's supported by attorney general bo biden. i thought it was a proposal, i could be wrong, and that's the vice-president's son. critics say it's ambiguous and asked about the spanking ban. what you thought. dave. >> dave: she says i was never spanked as a child and never saw the need to spank my own children. amazing how talking to them from the very beginning works. >> alisyn: i wish clayton were here to hear that. jim and carol from michigan write all children need splen and shows their parent loves them. no way the business of the government to tell anybody how to discipline their children. both sides. >> dave: where do you draw the line? it's difficult. many parents feel it's necessary, in the home and still discipline and some parents cross the line and hence, laws like this. >> alisyn: i'm sure janice dean has it all figured out.

9:39am
the wire comes out of the bottom. attaches to the wire and view into the bottom. very. very simple to do the next step is to actually put the lights together and generally come in two pieces and the wiring fits in the channel. and it pops in there, if i can get in there and then it tests on and you skroo you -- screw it on, and for a range here, we're uplighting a tree, you could put lights in the tree to give a moonlight effect which is beautiful or put them on the ground to light the tree and make them stand out. arrange them around the tree and figure out, spacing between them, how many you need. the next thing is to actually put it into the ground. now, one would think that the people kind of hammer these into the ground and they're sturdy and made to be outside and not meant to be hammered. get a garden tool and slide them in the ground. the next most important step is the connection. you'll see at the bottom, a
9:40am
wire is coming out and it's easier to see. each has a little connector and basically two pieces, lien that up. two prongs at the top and they snap together. the wire goes in the middle of this, when it snaps together. that tells you that the connections have been made and they poke into the wire and again, it's low voltage and that's all you need to do. >> then you're done. >> do we have a finished photograph of what this would look like. >> we have a photograph to show what it looks like when it lights up. the last step, the wire, you may want to move these around once you get it done and check it and plug it in and working and may want to put it in a different arrangement and once that's done and confirm they're working then you can bury the cable or cover it up, cover it up with the mull being. and as long as you don't see it, and it's totally perfect to be sitting there just under the surface. >> check out everything at home depot.com for more tips how to improve our outdoor state. and thank you so much. it just came to me, guys, it's

9:47am
it's fine up to a point. but, i'm really troubled when people in north carolina andee aye already are voting and we haven't had the first presidential debate yet. 15% of the country is going to be able to vote before the first debate. if you were suing someone and you were in front of a jury, three or four of the jurors walked out in the middle of your lawyer's argument wouldn't you feel cheated, as if you didn't have a chance to complete your case. >> look at colorado and nevada. estimate that around two-thirds of the vote could have come from early voting, even in ohio, a crucial state. 1.7 million ballpark and 30%. now, obviously, military members have no choice, but overseas to fill out the absentee ballots. can anything be gathered, garnered from early voting being up or down, a particular battle ground state. obviously these are not counted or made public, can you gather anything from the
9:48am
numbers early on in the process? >> well, i think there is some danger that a few are counting them early. oregon, for example, and you're right, in almost all cases they're not counted until election day. now, i do think that this kind of change has really happened without people fully understanding how much it's going to alter our election process. you know, 5% of people voted early or ab seen tee, now it's 40% this year. it changes the tenor of the campaign i think we spend more money on politics. there's a theory that early voting benefits democrats and absentee date yeah republicans, there's no clear hard data. >> dave: interesting. and the book is from who's counting, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> dave: up next, alana stewart is joining us, talking about her rise to family and famous ex's.
